Liam Palmer is pleased with his career progress to date – but is now keen to move to the next level.
That means regular first team football higher up the ladder having spent a successful season on loan with League 1 side Tranmere last time out.
Palmer proved a popular figure at Prenton Park, impressing over the Pennines as he posted a near ever-present campaign.
He said: “I really enjoyed my time at Tranmere and I’d like to think I made a good impression there.
“I played a lot of games and that was where I needed to be at that stage of my career.
“But we are heading into a new season now and my target is to break into the first team here.”
Academy product Palmer, 21, signed a new contract at Hillsborough prior to extending his loan spell with Tranmere in January. And the midfielder, who filled in at right back on Saturday as the Owls beat Scunthorpe 1-0, was keen to secure his future in S6:
“I signed for two years and that was important to me because everyone wants to know where their career is heading.
“I am proud to play for Sheffield Wednesday and this club has all the potential to really go places.
“Everyone is in good spirit in pre-season and we’re putting in a lot of hard work.
“We’ve played two games, won them both and not conceded, so you can’t really ask for much more than that.
“We’re here in Portugal now with two games against very different teams and we’re looking forward to the challenges ahead.”
